The tripling of ratings in three weeks is something to write about. SBS Fri-Sat drama Hot Stove League premiered on December 13th with a super low 3.3% AGB nationwide ratings. It’s since only gone up and the most recent episode hot 10.1%, that’s so amazing nowadays. Starring Namgong Min and Park Eun Bin, the drama is a feel good underdog sports story but judging from the positive reviews and rising ratings it’s clearly appealing to more than just sports junkies. I love sports but the best sports dramas and movies are definitely ones that use the backdrop to tell universal tales of redemption and perseverance. Congrats to the cast and crew and I can’t wait to start my watch!
